Database Demonstrates Which Programming Languages Are the Most Productive

ASP, Visual Basic and Java come out on top.

Many newer programming languages claim to offer higher productivity than old standbys, but hard data on that productivity can be tough to find. However, a new database of 6,000 projects run by the non-profit ISBSG is allowing researchers to compare programming languages based on hours per function point. It ranks ten principal programming languages as follows:

  1. ASP (6.1 hours per function point)
  2. Visual Basic (8.5 hours per function point)
  3. Java (10.6 hours per function point)
  4. SQL (10.8 hours per function point)
  5. C++ (12.4 hours per function point)
  6. C (13.0 hours per function point)
  7. PL/1 (14.2 hours per function point)
  8. C# (15.5 hours per function point)
  9. COBOL (16.8 hours per function point)
  10. ABAP (19.9 hours per function point)
